View Full Version : What are you finding hard atm?
Here, 'no' (which was bad enough!) has become 'no way' - I have NO idea where that came from as he doesn't hear it at home :puzzled: :happyno:
do you want your shoes on? No way!
Do you want egg for lunch? No way!
It's time for bed / bath / to go in the car in a minute - No way!
:hissyfit: I'm going to go insane I tell ya!
'No' here too, along with 'i don't care' (he got that from me :oops: ).
The fact that he's really testing the boundaries at the moment, seeing what he can get away with and it's leaving me utterly exhausted- I'm finding work a welcome break atm.
Not getting enough sleep!
I want my nearly-17mth old to realise that having milk in the night is for babies, and to sleep through. And he does.....maybe every 3rd night :doh: :zombie: (and yes, he IS hungry - wakes at random times, no pattern, and downs 10fl oz in approx 2mins!)
Hohum. As you were. TBH it doesn't usually bother me *that* much, but after 2 days of 5am starts to the day, followed by two stormy nights where the wind/rain woke me at 4am, I'm not at my best :zombie:
Oh, and from the big sister, who knows she's having a birthday party in due course, if you tell her off it's all 'Well, YOU'RE not coming to my party then' and flouncing off. I've got mean on that though - I reply 'well you won't HAVE a party if I'm not invited' :mwaha:
why? why? why? but why mummy? :brainache:
It's driving me round the loop
Amy saying 'dat' and pointing at every single fecking thing in the room (or wherever we are) and if I dont answer her she goes into total meltdown mode. Very tiring right now.
Not helped by Claire's total attitude, backchat and general teenager like behaviour!
Am thanking small mercies at the moment though that they are sleeping through until 6ish. (Or have I just jinxed that by saying that here.....)
Whinging unless I carry him EVERYWHERE :yeahright:
Same as popinjay the use of the word Dat and pointing so you sayd id this what you want? Response NO then meltdown:hissyfit:
Rhys throws everything onto the floor. He'll sit in his cot and throw all his toys out them have a go at the table next to him and pushes everything off it. Also when they are in their highchairs they both throw their food on the floor and then scream for me to pick it up so they can do it again!
Mia won't lie down to go to sleep! I lie her down and she immediately sits up and giggles and as soon as I walk away from cot she's up again giggling. She thinks its a big game. Then she keep Rhys awake and he needs his sleep even more than she does and I go in their room and they are both in their cots laughing at eachother as if they are scheming how to drive mummy mad!
Tantrums without me knowing why, or at least trying to communicate first.
teething..number 3..potty training number 2...tnatrums with number 3....and ....the MIL
Not getting enough sleep! Same here, story of my life :cry: He is nearly TWO its about time someone told him he should be sleeping through by now :lol:
Being told to shut up all the time he mutters it under his breath or shouts it at us :no:
The word mine. Suddenly everything in the world is 'mine' and it's driving me bonkers. Today has been particularly bad as we have had Chickpeas Esme here and she did not want to share anything :angry: She is generally testing the boundries at the moment but this is definately the worst thing right now.
TBH she has been a horrible grumpy madam since the minute she woke up this morning and I will be really glad to see the back of her at bedtime tonight!! :oops:
the phrase "Do you know" every sentence starts with "Mummy, DO you know"
eg Mummy, do you know I would like a drink now
Mummy Do you know I need a wee
Mummy do you know thats the post office
Mummy do you know daddys in the kitchen
You catch my drift lol
Interdispersed with violence and "superhero" play. Shooting, hitting, shouting, punching...............
boys eh :brainache:
the whingey whiney temper tantrums that Euwyn seems to be having ALL THE FECKING TIME:hissyfit: :hissyfit: (*throws temper tantrum of her own)
The whining and the fighting (oh and can I add the shouting and screaming at each other - the kids that is)
And the noise, and the mess
Constant demands for the dummy. I really want it gone but can't be doing with the fallout if I do bin it :oops:
Backchat from C, who's 8 going on 18 and thinks she knows it all
Other than that the constant stream of illness :rolleyes: . If I'm not cleaning runny bums I'm cleaning up puke and I've had enough of it :hissyfit:
choccy eating monster
Ironing board tantrums. Any kind of tantrums really!
Eating. She has become picky eater extraodinaire and just spits out the whole mouthful of food without even trying it. Dirty mare:no:
Trying to entertain her. She does a runner in the park, and I walk off and say "See ya" and she stands, stares then turns and runs off in the other direction:rolleyes: God knows what she will be like when she is 3. Think I will sell her on EBay tbh.:puzzled:
LIFE:faint: :cry: :faint:
The word mine. Suddenly everything in the world is 'mine' and it's driving me bonkers.
:nod: Along with 'Me have it!'
Saying 'no i can do it myself mammy' about absolutely everything...meaning you can never go anywhere or be anywhere on time..because she is trying to dress herself ..go to the toilet by herself etc....although having said that this independent streak could be very handy when the new baby shows up:grin:
Leaving DD at nursery for a couple of hours each morning for the initiation period (or whetever its called). :cry: A bit silly I know, but she's never been left with anyone else - she goes everywhere with me.
The way she shoots me a defiant look before hurling her food off the table.:angry:
Lack of sleep. Another one who needs to learn that nightime is for sleeping, not screech, flip, screech, flip....
Teething and exploding poo :doh:
Oh, and the 'dat' thing... sometimes identifying EVERYTHING gets so repetitive
If I say "no" she replies "why not?"
Main thing bothering me is the fussy eating. She wouldn't even try her dinner tonight. A perfectly yummy cheesy pasta (Ok with bits of mashed carrot, turnip and broccoli hiding in it:nod: ), but we discussed it and she agreed she likes carrots, brocolli, pasta and cheese. So why why why wouldn't she even try it?:scratchchin: :hissyfit: Sent her to bed with an empty tummy. grrrr
"mummy....................mummy.................... ..mummy......................mummy...............m ummy.................mummy"
Wriggling out of her car seat straps (really really annoying)
Refusing the pushchair "I WALK"
"My turn" "Dosie's turn" "mine" "self do it"
Arun's messy eating! He eats everything with hands, even though he can use a spoon or fork perfectly well. He then proceeds to rub hands full of food everywhere. Aaaagghhh.
Tonight he ate ice cream with his hands :loco: .... I told DH it was just a phase and one day he'd eat nicely :lol: He didn't look convinced at all :happyno:
With Hannah, it's the constant negotiation required to get any kind of cooperation. Oh, and the faces she pulls when she's not happy with something!
Breakdown over anything at the moment, wanting to go in caffe nero :loco: Mummy says no come on joshua lets go, joshua sits on floor, repeat three times and mummy getting wound up. This morning from the moment he woke up to when i left the house EVERYTHING set him off; getting dressed, putting away the sweets my brother had out last night, changing his nappy, TWICE! Putting on his socks, getting his shoes etc...catch my drift.
